Why Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa’s Family Is Your Favorite

“One hundred percent they’re relationship goals, and it’s weird because I’ve been with them the longest,” Michael, who played a younger version of his dad’s character on Riverdale in 2021, told Entertainment Tonight in August. “Not a year after they were married, about a year, then I came into the picture. So we kind of grew up together, at least that’s how I see it.”

Next he’ll be taking credit for how well they turned out, but Kelly and Mark were only about the age their eldest son is now when they met and just knew.

“Happy birthday to the light of our lives @instasuelos,” Kelly, 52, wrote in honor of Mark’s 50th in 2021, after getting fans psyched for the milestone with a series of shirtless pics of her husband. “I’ve loved you for more than half of your life, here are the years before we met. I was looking for you.” And on her birthday Oct. 2, Mark dedicated a post to “my best friend, lover, confidant. My dance partner in life…My forever girl.”
